OOH Lincoln suffered a huge blow to their hopes as they went down to a 2-1 defeat at home to Leeds City Vixens. Sophie Barker had given Lincoln the lead just before the hour mark but the Vixens hit back for a fine victory with goals from Ruth Cockerill and Tania Panesar.
Leicester City got back to winning ways with a 3-0 success at Luton Town. The Foxes had to battle hard to take the points against a resolute Luton side. Leicester gave a first team debut to youngster, Lauren Handley and she had a sparkling game, first she hit a 25-yard shot which cannoned off the upright, and then she opened the scoring after 35 minutes with a blistering strike from 35 yards out that gave keeper Amy Summerfield no chance. Natasha Meade increased their lead with a curling shot after 64 minutes, and Courtney Sweetman-Kirk wrapped the game up for City with eight minutes remaining.
Preston North End have provided plenty of goals in their recent matches and Sunday was no exception, battling out a thrilling 4-4 draw with Aston Villa. Carly Davies, Erin Vaughan and Kelly Clarke netted in a ten minute spell as Villa raced into a three-goal lead in the first half, with Sarah Berry pulling one back on the stroke of half time. Hannah Bailey then netted twice to bring Preston level and, although Natalie Gibson put Villa in front once more, Berry scored her second goal to earn Preston a share of the spoils.
Curzon Ashton banished any lingering relegation fears with a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday, who remain perilously close to the bottom two. After the first half ended goalless, Amanda Goodwin gave Curzon the lead with Katie Nutter replying, before Becky Lee grabbed a winner for the Lancashire side, five minutes from time.
